Scalable Networking for Open Clouds (Seacliff CD)
Networking matters. Scalable networks won’t build themselves and the characteristics of web scale systems such as Rackspace Cloud and AWS EC2 require advanced (or retrograded) thinking for how networks are designed, built, and operated.

We will cover hardware vs. software VLANs, L2 vs. L3 scalability, software-defined networking (SDN), network virtualization, edge networking services, and integration to OpenStack projects, including Nova, Quantum, and Swift. A brief discussion will be had around what Quantum does and doesn’t do.
